Friday funny bonus – Green blob feeling the heat

Josh writes:  There is lots of news around about renewables, especially wind and solar, feeling the sharp stab of economic reality and the burn of bankrupcy – see SunEdison, German renewables, more SunEdison, Dutch wind and British green blundering – all via The GWPF.
